COMMITTED MADAGASCAR TOURS
We have chosen to limit our groups to 20 people during Madagascar tours in order to not disturb the environment as much as possible. Community based tours are even more limited to guarantee quality of interpretation and unspoiled hospitality.
We do not leave any signs of our presence, we take our rubbish home. We use gas instead of wood in order not to contribute to deforestation.
We refuse any kind of business causing destruction of the environment by asking our guests not to buy any items made from protected species. It includes crocodile skin, turtle shells, sea shells, coral and butterflies.
We answer to your request fast thanks to our devoted partners (hotels, car rentals, guides…) with whom we work for years now to do the best travel Madagascar. We also invest on our communications system as for example optical fiber, to keep on our connection to the world and be efficient to you.
We take care of the knowledge of our team, especially by sending them on educational tours at least once a year. This way, they can see by themselves what has changed, positively or negatively, on a determined tour and advise you consequently.
We actively participate in the development of eco-tourism in partnership with Madagascar National Parks, National Tourism Board, ONE (National Organization for the Environment), WWF, and Go To Madagascar association.
During Madagascar Tours, we use local products that are ecologically sustainable on our campsites.
We respect cultural assets on the basis of consultation and control by the local communities involved.
By respecting those basic principles, we think we contribute to the preservation of our magnificent natural environment, and it is our pleasure to share it with our guests. Our touristic activities benefit local communities through several school projects we directly support.
We use the services of local providers that are ethical in business, wherever they work with us. We comply to the work legislation applicable in Madagascar for all our staff.
We encourage our guest to buy only locally made handcraft and use a much as possible locally-owned hotels and restaurants to support the development of inbound businesses.
